Best Practices for Nutanix and Veeam Backup & Replication for vSphere

Veeam and Nutanix together can help tackle data protection challenges in virtualized environments.

This document makes recommendations for the optimization and scaling of Veeam Backup & Replication v7 with Nutanix for VMware vSphere. It shows the scalability of the joint solution and provides configuration information for both Veeam Backup & Replication and Virtual Computing Platform.

 

The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform is a scalable virtualization platform for desktop, server, and big data deployments. This document provides recommendations for the optimization and scaling of Veeam Backup & Replication v8, part of Veeam Availability Suite, with Nutanix and VMware vSphere. It shows the scalability of the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform and provides configuration information on the scale-out capabilities of both Veeam Backup & Replication and Nutanix. Customers can easily back up large-scale Nutanix deployments with the most reliable transport method using Veeam network backup mode and the Nutanix 10Gb NICs. Depending on their requirements and available hardware, network mode lets customers to choose between using either type of proxy server.
